The dates for the 2018 Artweeks festival are 5th-28th May, with a regional focus on North and West Oxfordshire (5th-13th), Oxford city (12th-20th) and South Oxfordshire & Vale (19th-28th including bank holiday Monday). The deadline for registering for the 2018 festival will be 31st December 2017 and we are unable to accept late entries.
Artweeks is an artists' organisation which provides opportunities for Oxfordshire artists and designer-makers with a flagship event in May, a festival of open studios and pop-up exhibitions across the county, in which anyone can take part if they live or work in Oxfordshire or are a member of an established Oxfordshire based art group, society or guild. If you would like to exhibit, you need to register as an Artweeks member, find a venue for your exhibition and sign up to exhibit either as a solo artist or as part of a group exhibition using the on-line registration system.
The Christmas Season is designed to give Artweeks members who registered for the May exhibitions the chance to promote a November/December show they would expect to hold anyway – whether that’s as a solo artist, or as a participant at a Christmas fayre or other event/venue (at dates of your choosing between 4th November and 17th December). If you are a member organising a local event that's primarily for Artweeks members and local artisans, you may take a listing as a group or event rather than an individual – however, if you plan to include participants who are not Artweeks members, please contact the office on email@example.com to confirm that the listing can be included.
It is now too late to sign up for the Christmas Season 2017. Registration for the Artweeks Christmas Season 2018 will take place during June 2018.
